Anyway, to the main subject of the post. I have been meaning to post this for a little while now. I purchased a magnificent resin 28mm breastworks set from 'Paul's Modelling Workshop' http://www.paulsmodellingworkshop.com/
This the 'Field Breast Works 1' set. There is a 2nd set available too now. This model comes unpainted or painted (I chose unpainted so I could have a go myself) and it is a most wonderfully designed and sculpted set, with lots of raised texture. I could see that a layering approach with final dry-brushing would do the job of painting very quickly and effectively.
To my amazement, it only took about 3 hours work in total to paint it all up. Dry bushing the colours really was the way to do it, once the basic shades were on. I started with a matt black so that the wooden inner planking supports would show depth.
Anyway, a few more pics here to finish off. I have only shown it with a few figures just so you get an impression of how it looks, without me crowding the scene with troops! I absolutely love this model and I look forward to playing a lot of games with it as a key feature.
